Proudly South African business, Hope Sonic, has created 30 new permanent jobs by expanding its Zeus toy range in Shoprite and Checkers supermarkets, just in time for the festive season.
The small enterprise supplies Shoprite and Checkers with a range of toys made from recycled materials, including a digger, dump truck and various ride-on bikes.
Hope Sonic now employs around 100 people – of which 70% are women – following the expansion of its range from one to 16 toys and anticipates further growth in 2023.
The company is located in Blackheath, Cape Town, and employees live within walking distance of its factory.
